Abstract

The paper considers the properties of bacterioferritin Dps, which is involved in the sequestering of iron ions, forms the ferrihydrite core inside the protein cavity, and functions as a major nucleoid protein. Experimental evidence on the effect of microwave irradiation on the dps gene expression is presented. The structural and functional organization of its regulatory region is analyzed, and the technological prospects of bacterioferritin application for designing new materials with desired properties are discussed.
